A US aircraft carrier-led strike group is heading towards the Korean Peninsula as a show of force, a US defense official confirmed to CNN.

The USS Carl Vinson is en route in response to recent North Korean statements, according to CNN’s source.

It is not uncommon for the US to deploy military assets to that area as a show of force. In fact, the USS Carl Vinson was in South Korea last month.
